This Official National League baseball has a good look overall with even coloring but much of what is printed on here, as well as the signatures, is rather light. For instance, it would appear to be a very old vintage ball on the basis of what looks like the facsimile signature of NL President John Heydler (1918-1934). There are about a dozen signatures on the ball though some are extremely light. Eddie Collins stands out as one of the finest here, about a 5 of 10 in darkness. Others are more easily read but Babe Ruth, Bill Terry, Chuck Klein, Lefty Grove, Chick Hafey and Frankie Frisch are clubhouse signatures. After very close inspection, it appears that there are also signatures from Al Simmons (very faint, 1 or 2 of 10), Jimmie Foxx (2 of 3 of 10), and Wes Ferrell (5 or 6 of 10). Ball and stitching are excellent. Auction LOA from JSA.
